Favorite Quote:
No, maybe I can't win, maybe the only thing I can do is just take everything he's got. But to beat me, he's gonna have to kill me, and to kill me, he's gonna have to have the heart to stand in front of me, and to do that, he's gotta be willing to die himself and I don't know if he's ready to do that. I don't know, I don't know.
Rocky Balboa
Rocky IV (1985)

The small, green, frog swims
in the clear, shallow, water.
The frog is happy.

I originally wrote this poem as an assignment for my English class. My teacher told that he really enjoyed reading my poetry. Then he told me bout Teen Ink and i decided to submit my poems.

This was a very fun, relaxing piece that I enjoyed.  My favorite verse it the last one because it makes ME feel happy being relaxed and in my happy place.  This haiku is one of the best I've ever read! Great job!
